The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is running a new television ad in California targeting Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) as doing little in her nearly three decades of service. Boxer faces a competitive race against former HP CEO Carly Fiorina, one of several Republican candidates the chamber is spending big bucks to boost this fall.
Bill Miller, national political director for the chamber, charged in a statement that Boxer has made “California businesses less competitive, costing the state jobs.” Politico reported the ad will run statewide for two weeks.
The San Francisco Chronicle opted this weekend for a non-endorsement, saying voters were left with a “deeply unsatisfying choice” on the fall ballot.
The TPM Poll Average of this race has Boxer ahead 47.5%-Fiorina 44.3%. The two candidates face off again in a debate Wednesday.
